Relationship development and online dating research
Successful deception carries an enormous advantage. Through multiple iterations of this process, human females have bred the best salesmen, politicians, hypesters, liars, etc. Then, with their usual circular thinking, they blame and punish men for their obedience.
If you haven’t found quite what you’re looking for on an online dating site, you aren’t alone.
In effect the early research suggests that men and women have beliefs about what prospective dates want and they present themselves in a way that matches.
This is particularly an issue for heterosexual men as heterosexual women get approximately six times more contacts than do men.
Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
The share of 18- to 24-year-olds who use online dating has roughly tripled from 10% in 2013 to 27% today.
